successful mission to mars, what is the future of nasa? we'll talk to jim about whether nasa is losing its lead in the space race. >>> the risque bestseller "fifty shades of grey" has big holiday bonuses for every single employee. mandy drury is here. how much green is grey bringing in? >> 5,000 shades of green. random house had its corporate christmas party and the ceo stood up and promised every single employee a $5,000 bonus to celebrate what i guess has been a very profitable year, largely thanks to the "fifty shades of grey." and the cheering went on for minutes. this book has topped the "new york times" paperback bestsellers list for 33 weeks. and it's not just "fifty shades of grey." random house has had other big hits as well. they are going to be issued in the next paycheck and here's a little factoid for you. apparently the first book in the grey series was originally published by a really small publishing house in australia. i did not know that. >> and i just realized that i read two of those books, "gone girl" and the grisham book. if those employees want to parlay their bonuse
probably saw a really cool image. a nighttime view of the earth from space. nasa was able to show us this image, thanks to a new satellite equipped with something called visible infrared imaging radiometer suite. but this image of the globe from space is not what you might think it is. we do not have a camera far enough away from earth to get an image of the whole thing. it's a composite knitted together from data taken by the satellite as it made several passes around the earth. lots of the cool pictures you see like of hurricanes from earth are actually composites. anything close enough to the earth to be held by its gravitational pull is also too close to get a whole earth picture. for perspective, this is what the earth looks like from the international space station. you can't really see the whole thing at once. only a couple dozen earthlings have ever been far enough from the earth to see the whole thing. like the crew of apollo 8, who took this picture commonly known as "earth rise" from the window of the craft as they orbited the moon in 1968. unfortunately, nearly half the e
